Future models in process chemistry will increasingly be based on a multi-component, multi-phase Gibbs energy approach. ChemSheet is the foremost pioneer in Gibbs’ian process modelling. Taking advantage of unique immaterial constraints, ChemSheet handles reaction rate controlled chemical systems, multi-phase membrane systems, complex materials with surface phases, and much more.
SimulationStore is a web portal that provides an easy access to VTT’s and its partners' Modelling and Simulation (M&S) offering.
- In these pages you can find information about the computational tools and related M&S services provided by VTT.
- By registering to the web pages you can download the installers of the computational tools and different plug-in products.
- In addition you can manage your own licenses related to these products.
- Some of the VTT’s computational tools include Simupedia features. It is also possible to publish interactive models to the SimulationStore using this functionality.
Model checking is an efficient formal method for the verification of hardware and software designs. Based on model checking, VTT offers a service for verifying that automation system software design fulfils stated requirements. The difference to more common verification methods (like testing or simulation) is that all the possible executions of the system model are taken into account. Exhaustive analysis means that hidden design errors can be found in systems that have already undergone verification through conventional means.
Probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) is a systematic and comprehensive methodology to assess the risks of complex systems. PRA is an essential part of the safety management in safety-critical industries, such as the nuclear industry, power production, process industry and transportation. PRA provides vital information to evaluate the importance of critical functions, identify weaknesses in technological systems, and optimise and balance design, operation and maintenance. In the nuclear domain, PRA is used to continuously find ways to improve safety, justify plant modifications, optimise annual maintenance revisions and fulfil regulations.
Identification of novel enzymes with specific function by conducting homology based database searches.
Process design and analysis is always based on the management of mass and energy balances. BALAS simulation tool is the most effective way to obtain information on the behaviour of an existing process and get a deeper understanding of the interactions in your process. Built-in link to MS Excel enables easy transfer and customised visualisation of simulation data.
The SULCA 4.2 software allows the user to perform LCAs including life-cycle inventory (LCI) and impact assessment (LCIA) calculations, as well as to present the calculation results in a comprehensible manner through its unique reports and charts. With this software, calculation of footprints e.g. carbon footprint is transparent and easy.
SULCA 4.2 is fast and easy to use, offering the following:
KilnSimu is used in several industries. Though the technology of rotating drums has been available for over 100 years, it has not been replaced, but remains in active use in many of its traditional applications. The rotary drum provides an effi cient means for both heat and mass transfer in the processing of slurries and other condensed mixtures.
SULCA software allows the user to perform Ecodesign and various kinds of Life Cycle Assessments (LCA). With SULCA, the environmental, carbon and water footprints can be calculated in a transparent and user-friendly way. Tool supports the evaluation of sustainability and environmental performance of a product,process, technology or any other system.
SULCA’s version 5 is new and the latest version developed at VTT. SULCA 5.0 has the highly visual and easy-to-use features for which the previous versions are well known, along with a new and improved user interface that helps the user to perform reliable and easily understandable LCAs and its’ applications. In addition, a lot of new user friendly possibilities to make evaluation and calculation efficient and clear.
